After three years of stability on the podium, Real Madrid leapfrogged United to the summit, while Bayern Munich climbed above Barcelona into third spot in KPMG's latest Football Benchmark study.

The report calculates the "enterprise value" of Europe’s top 32 clubs, based on profitability, broadcasting rights, popularity, sporting potential and stadium value.

It analysed the results of the 2016/17 and 2017/18 seasons and found that Real's on-field success, with three successive UEFA Champions League titles, led to an increase in revenue of 41% over three years.

Bayern Munich's increase in value of around 25% over three years saw them climb above Barcelona, with the German giants now being valued at €2.7 billion and the Blaugrana at €2.68 billion.
